BaByliss Sleek Control Wide Straightener Review salon sleek results with long-lasting smoothness thanks to the Babyliss Sleek Control Wide 235 straightener.

The 45mm wide nano-ceramic plates straighten larger sections at one time for easy use and fast results. The Nano-ceramic plates glide through your locks for the ultimate smoothness too.

This straightener also comes with a heat protection mat, perfect for those who have a tendency to leave them on surfaces that can easily be damaged. It’s great to use after styling to ensure you tidy away your hair tool as it cools and not leave where someone could accidentally touch it.

The straightener also has an automatic shut-off feature for added safety. If the straightener is switched on for more than 72 minutes continuously, then it will automatically switch off. Perfect if you’re one of those people who constantly worry that they’ve left their hair tools on.


The Babyliss Sleek Control 235 hair straightener has an amazing 20 different temperatures for you to choose from, to ensure this tool is the right heat for your hair. The hottest temperatures it will reach is 235°C, but remember to only use this if your hair is extremely coarse and difficult to straighten.

The Advanced Ceramics heating system allows the straightener to heat quickly; it takes just 30 seconds and maintains the salon performance throughout its use.

Control the temperature of the straightener with the rotating dial, once you select your desired heat the red indicator light will blink until the optimum temperature has been reached.

BaByliss Sleek Control Wide Straightener Review

Another excellent tool from Babyliss. The Sleek Control Wide 235 straightener is ideal for those with long or difficult-to-straighten locks. The 45mm wide plates allow you straighten more hair at once so you can get through your styling more efficiently.

It has everything you could need from a straightener with Advanced Ceramics to ensure it maintains its high heat, and nano-ceramic plates to allow you to glide through hair with ease. Plus they’re only £35, a complete snip considering how well they work.

Babyliss never really fail with their hair tools and this is another tool that we love from them.
